What is G Suite for Education?
Google has purpose-built G Suite for Education with educational institutions in mind. They have included all the tools and methodologies needed to make a quick and easy transition to the cloud. G Suite for Education includes hosted email, calendar, chat and integrated communication and collaboration solutions exclusively for schools. Additionally, you can complement the core suite to meet your users' needs, with access to dozens more Google applications.
G Suite for Education includes dozens of critical security features specifically designed to keep your data safe, secure and in your control. Your data belongs to you, and Apps tools enable you to control it, including who you share it with and how you share it.
With G Suite for Education, everything is automatically saved in the cloud. This means that emails, documents, calendars and sites can be accessed - and edited - on almost any mobile device or tablet. Anytime, anywhere. G Suite for Education support is fully integrated with Smart-Net™, enabling Smart-Net™ to automatically keep all user accounts in sync with your G Suite account.
